Parenting is worst that being stuck at a job you detest. You hate the job and you know it. However, parenting is filled with complex emotions like you hate your kid one minute and love them the next. It is filled with emotionally rewarding and draining events you need to face on a daily basis. Thus, it can be concluded that parenting is hard. But, there are few tips and tricks that can help you relax a bit and take a break from parenting.
Proofing your house
People who live in collectivistic culture do not believe in baby proofing their house. It is not their upright personalities that make them show hostility to these concepts but rather they do not understand the need for it. They would always have someone to look after the kid while they are busy with something. However, currently with the concept of nuclear family, everyone understands the need to baby proof their house. You do not want your kid to mistakenly play with an open socket or fall into a pool.
You can think of pool fencing your pool to help ensure kids cannot get into the pool without adult supervision. You might think it is too superfluous as well as economically unnecessary risk, but you should call for a quote before you decide on it. Moreover, there should be nothing that is more important than your child or baby. You can also invest a bit on getting baby proofing items like furniture corner cushions, stove knob covers and so one. You should also think of nailing your items to the floor, this will have an added advantage if you live in a place prone to earthquakes.
Keep your child nearby when you cannot keep an eye on them
If you are the parent of a small baby, then you always need to keep an eye on them since they are more likely to get into mischief and they will not understand anything you tell them. If the baby has no learnt to move, then you can place them in a laundry basket or some other box with their toys to keep them from trying to do anything naughty. If your kid can understand what you are telling them, then you can always put restrictions on them and make use of punishments and rewards to make them listen to you.
Apart from the above mentioned tips, there are several other things that will help you be better parents at the same time keep your child safe. You should read a bit on psychology and try out new techniques in parenting books on your babies (do not try to conduct any human research, that is just illegal not to forget it will mess up your kid psychologically).
